My blissful escape from technology


“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” ― Henry David Thoreau, Walden: Or, Life in the Woods

I recently enjoyed seven exciting days on Saturna Island , B.C. revelling in the clean air, enchanting landscapes and freedom from computers, cell phones and screeching tires and auto exhaust. Pictured here on the left is a tool shed,small wooden bench and adjacent former residence used before the main lodging was erected. It was a most welcomed escape from hi-tech reality. Living here makes a person more self-reliant and more attune to the ways of Mother Nature.

Quote of the week: “What is true is already so. Owning up to it doesn't make it worse. Not being open about it doesn't make it go away. And because it's true, it is what is there to be interacted with. Anything untrue isn't there to be lived. People can stand what is true, for they are already enduring it.” ― Eugene T. Gendlin, Focusing

    • Thanks for not calling me John Boy Walton. You do not miss the high tech stuff — at least for one week Then I guess you start to experience withdrawal pangs and guilt. Who knows. Thank you for your thoughts. Enjoy the weekend. 🙂
